Chain Mail Chess Set Answered

Picture of

This entire chess set is made out of chain mail. The amount of work that must have gone into this is mind-boggling. You will certainly lose the nice sound of solidly dropping a piece into a new strategic location, but maybe the clank of chain mail on chain mail will be even more satisfying.

I always thought the slang "sick" meant horrible, or disgusting.  *shrug*

Yeah, that's kind of what I thought:

OLD VERSION OF SICK

Pronunciation: 'sik
Function: adjective
Etymology: Middle English sek, sik, from Old English sEoc; akin to Old High German sioh sick
---------------------------------------
1. Not feeling good.

2 a (1) : affected with disease or ill health : AILING (2) : of, relating to, or intended for use in sickness <sick pay> <a sick ward>

NEW VERSION

Now used as the newest word to replace cool. Something that you've never seen before.


and then,  THIS daffy-nition  


Adjective.
1. to feel ill, or not well.
2. A secondary word for awesome.
3. Gross, disgusting.
4. Tired, pissed off.
5. Horny.

Uses
 
1. I feel very sick, I think I might vomit.
2. Dude, that song is so sick!
3. That was sick when he had sex with that gorrilla.
4. I am sick of your attitude.
5. Who wants to get sick with me.

The words have been changed to protect the guilty....... ;-)

sick meant ill,  litterally,  but in slang terms it once meant  something that was gross, not just infected :-)

This is the link to the guy who made the chess board. He makes baskets, statues, sculptures, and anything else you could possibly imagime out of chainmail...I was into making chainmail for quite some time and from what I know it took about 5 years from idea to final product for the chess board. He was also trying to sell the chess set for around $15,000.00 last time i checked

That is Sick...

 

 Also... Just an aside... Sick is more precisely applied to something that is Cool or Awesome... but also a bit Crazy. Skateboard and Surfer lingo... That 50 Foot wave he rode was SICK! (Awesome... and a bit crazy)

That is simply amazing. My guy and I collect chess sets, but I dont see this happening anytime soon :)
Sick= awesome. Crazy, isnt it? But apparently its the latest rage and all the kids are saying it! Reminds me of when "sweet" and "tight" were started.

I imagine by changing the number of links in each row of mail, kind of like increasing and decreasing as you knit.
